I am an attentive pet sitter who works from home and has plenty of experience in dog behavior! I understand that dogs are always learning and I'll use any available opportunity as a teachable moment. I firmly believe that the best training you can give your dog comes from having a solid, caring relationship with them and communicating with them as the intelligent family members they are. I do not use any aversion techniques with my own dogs or my guests. The dogs in my care are given a safe environment, respectful and humane treatment, clear boundaries, and are rewarded for making good choices.
WAIT- YOUR PET'S NOT A DOG? No problem! I love all things creepy and crawly! I have taken care of/owned birds, hedgehogs, turtles, tortoises, snakes, frogs, rats, hamsters, gerbils. Pricing will be customized for your pet and the level of care they require, please contact me!
I offer various add-ons such as:
BATHS ($10 each, with Oatmeal for sensitive skin or regular as the shampoo; if you want Furminator de-shedding Shampoo and Brushing, $5 extra)
NAIL TRIMS ($5)
PICK UP/DROP OFF ($10, up to 10 miles) for boarding/daycare (10+ miles are subject to additional charge, but not out of the question)
BRUSHING (free, please provide tools)
CRATES to use while they're at my house (free) sizes Medium, Large and XL.
Holiday rates are applicable for the night before and after a holiday,
While you are at work, away on a business trip, or vacationing, I am more than happy to care for your pet(s). If needed, during house-sits I can bring in the mail, water plants or bathe/groom your pets at no extra cost! For Traveling Sits, I am able to come to you so I could meet you and your pet(s) to see if I am the right fit.
For walks, my service is 5 miles from 76111, but I do offer an out of range charge, just ask!
For Overnights Boarding, I encourage a meet and greet so that I can meet you and your pet(s). If you want to leave your dog(s) with me, I require a meet and greet because it is important that my dogs get along with yours. Please feel free to check out my house so you can get an idea where your pet(s) will be staying while you are away.
Your pet(s) will be given lots of love and attention as well as daily walk and exercise. I am more than happy to provide your pet(s) with whatever they need to make an unfamiliar surrounding comfortable for them (for Overnights Boarding).
***I am more than willing to accommodate pets that require special care due to age and/or other medical reasons.
